Never forget, the mission of Hamas was stated in their charter, "Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it". Last year, Hamas got some slick public relations advice, revising it with comparatively liberal language: "Palestine is a land that was seized by a racist, anti-human and colonial Zionist project that was founded on a false promise (the Balfour Declaration), on recognition of a usurping entity and on imposing a fait accompli by force." Liberals see them as an oppressed, colonial minority by white, European Jews, blaming Israel for Hamas' aggression. Palestinian terrorists have killed at least 15 Americans, including children, in recent years.
